    YnetNews: Sniper kills Al-Jazeera reporter in Syria
    In second such shooting in two days, Syrian journalist Mohammed Hourani killed by regime sniper

    AFP Published: 01.20.13, 00:15 / Israel News

    Before joining Al-Jazeera, Hourani was an activist in the uprising against President Bashar Assad, the broadcaster said.

    Outspoken in its support for the revolt against the Assad regime, Al-Jazeera vowed to pursue its editorial line despite the latest killing.

    Amateur video posted online and distributed by activists showed the moment that Hourani was killed.

    • I think we need to ban reporters …. they clearly are the reason people use guns.

      The video does appear the reporter was clearly the target. With Al-Jazaeera reporting for weeks of their brave reporters being targeted and killed by unknown snipers in areas considered to be safer to film makes it fair to guess some more moderate rebels who are not in a hurry to become martyrs, may be fragging pests they consider to be detrimental to the success of the revolt.

    • Reporters attract bullets
